At our school we promote and value good learning behaviours. We have developed a curriculum which develops the following areas, linked with an animal, to help the children remember them: working together (bee), good listening skills (bat), making links (spider), being resilient (ants), being ready to learn (elephant), empathy (monkey), making wise decisions (owl),taking risks (meerkat), being curious (cat) and ( tiger) being independent.
Each class has a daily "mirror" reflection time to talk about their learning and skills which they have yet to master. This is a collaborative, supportive time of self and peer evaluation. Every class also has a display of the learning behaviours which we expect to see.
